45 weeks, Halloween

I'll start with today's picture, then back up a bit to tell you a little about what we've been up to. At 45 weeks, Anna is very close to walking. Yikes! She took a step or two today (unassisted), but you might argue that she was falling forward and caught herself with her foot. (Wait, isn't that what walking really is?) Anyway, it won't be long. She still only has 2 teeth, but uses those to gnaw Cheerios, bananas and (cooked) carrots.

Last Thursday was the Costume Parade at Emily's preschool. I didn't really know what to expect, but it was kind of like a Trunk or Treat in the atrium of the church. What fun! Emily's class was one of the last ones to go so we had to wait a while to see our little frog. As you can see from the pictures, she was a bit stoic. She hardly looked at us and never smiled!

Anna was the pre-show!

I think she was just overwhelmed with it all!

Saturday, we headed to the ACU football game. The girls dressed in their matching purple shirts (probably for the only time, since Anna's is a 6 month and she wears 9 months!). They enjoyed hanging out with Grandpa & Pearlie.

Then, Saturday night we headed out to a Trunk or Treat. This one had games (Emily wanted nothing to do with them) and trunks (much more her style!), a candy apple tree where you could make a caramel apple and decorate it with sprinkles (see picture), stew & cornbread and a photo setup where they took our picture and should be emailing it to us. The picture was really cute and I'll post it when I get it.

Tonight was the Trunk or Treat at Highland. Unfortunately, my camera stayed home. My dad got a couple pictures and I got a couple videos, but they're really not all that exciting. Emily was much braver this year and actually walked up to the cars to get candy! One more night of trick or treating tomorrow night (at Granddaddy's place) then we'll settle in and enjoy the candy for the next few months!
